Hi,

How do you guys compare the verbal on MGMAT to the verbal on GMATPrep? I found some of the questions a little vague, especially the CR. I normally do well on CR and SC on GMATPrep.

RC I know my limits, but was surprised to get 5 CRs wrong. I'm going through some of the answer choices and I don't agree with the OA in some cases. I have never seen a GMATPrep question that had (in my mind) an OA that was not clearly the right answer.

I also found the RC tougher (answer choices were not as far apart as they usually are, even in the LSAT RC).

Only consolation was SC, missed only 1.

This of course brought my verbal down by 3-4 points.
Math came down by more, but I was expecting this.

IMHO, MGMAT tests are slightly, and I must emphasize slightly, more difficult than the old ETS version. But since it has been rumored that PVue has evolved to a certain extent, I'd be willing to guess (but not definitively answer) that MGMAT is well in line with PVue.

All things considered, MGMAT is the authority (other than the OG) when it comes to GMAT test prep.

There is a caveat, and that is their CATs are not adaptive.

I've also found Cambridge to be aligned with PVue in terms of the level of difficulty... and Cambridge is adaptive.

How many tests does Cambridge have? In the version I have, it has only 1 CAT.

Hmm...I found Cambridge easier than MGMAT, but more in line with GMATPrep...

I got access to Cambridge through my enrollment with MGMAT course. I've taken it 4 times without many repeats. I think you can probably take it up to 6 times until repeats start becoming an issue.

I had the same experience. I found MGMAT more difficult than GMATPREP, and I hate to admit but I almost saw a fall of close to 90 points so dropped from 600's to 500s which is a huge blow to my confidence. I guess for me its going to be : study like there is no tomorrow....

Quant is ok, i still dropped like there but not so bad.

But verbal I dropped from the GMATPrep of 34 to a 28 in MGMAT and I was like wierd ones were ofcourse the CR which are some what different and yes RC was hard, long science passages

I kind of get hit in Inference questions in RC, any suggestion for that?

Still have 2 more MGMAT exams to go through. What do you guys say? Should I not attempt these and download GMATPrep several times.... just practice with them?

My verbal dropped from a 43-44 on GMATPrep to 40 on the MGMAT. I think I saw questions on MGMAT for which I don't agree with the OA (especially in critical reasoning).

SC was quite representative.

Math, well score dropped from 50 on GMATPrep to 44 on MGMAT

And yes, its the same Cambridge CAT I'm taking about, got the same one through MGMAT. Found quant pretty easy, and verbal comparable to GMATPrep.

Over the past 7 days I have taken GMATPrep#1 and Cambridge CAT#2 and the scores were virtually identical (20 point difference). Another interesting point, I took Cambridge CAT #1 last December the day before the official test and the score differential was only 10 points. As far as the 550-650 range is concerned, I can personally attest to the accuracy of Cambridge.

Matt, this is good information. Taking into account all the inputs, I think I'm still about 20-30 points away from my target score. Puts things in perspective.... I do have 4-5 of the Cambridge tests remaining and one of the MGMAT, so I think this should be good evaluation of any progress I may make
